Somebody Gave Me an Incredible Chance!

I remember how I became a Christian. It is almost 10 years ago now but there is no doubt in my mind that someone gave me a chance. and it wasn’t just one person. There were the people who took it upon themselves to go from house to house and teach bible stories to children and anyone interested. that was my first real introduction to the bible. Even though I acted like those missionaries were just disturbing me, how interesting…

Day 5- The Wisdom of Following Jesus

Bible Reading:  Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 11:19-26 I remember when my wife and I had our first child, and then one day while taking a little walk with our two-or-so month old daughter, some overzealous street uncle walking towards us does that thing of tapping the baby’s checks and says ‘fine boy, how are you?’ Typical Nigerian parents then would usually then go ‘she said she’s fine, thank you’.   There were two reasons why he didn’t get any such response…
